I flew to Calgary this week for a new job, helping a government agency to convert from the IDMS on the mainframe to a Microsoft environment. For now, I’m staying about two blocks from the office (left modern building shown in photo), but probably after a 5-8 weeks, I’ll be working from home in Texas, with occasional travel back to Calgary.
My hotel (http://www.5calgary.com) is older, but I have three rooms, which includes full kitchen with Admiral-brand appliances that are clean, but look like they are from the 1960s. The nearest grocery, Safeway, is a hefty 10-block walk.
And – the sun is currently starting to set about 8:30, it’s at least 9:00 before dark.
